Summary

I am a highly motivated person, capable of working on my own initiative, as well as part of a team. I am an honest, reliable and outgoing professional with a mature approach guaranteed in all  aspects of employment. I have good numeracy and accuracy skills. I am a forward thinking person  who is confident, and use the skills I have learnt to my benefit which makes me capable of any tasks that lie ahead.

I have an extensive background in domestic and commercial electrics which was gained from a 5 year career within the British Army. After being self-employed and gaining more qualifications within this field for a number of years i decided to go back into education, and in 2019 gained a first with Honours from the University of Worcester in Computer Science BSc(Hons). This has then led me to be currently employed as a junior software engineer.

Previous Work Reference

Mr Glen Stimson had worked for me for 3 years as an electrician at my property before deciding on a career change. I work from home as a web designer therefore ensuring the electrical circuits in my home are always up to date is very important to me, and so I have had a lot of work carried out by him, and have a good professional relationship with him. He is always well presented, with good manners and is always willing to go the extra mile for me and any of his other customers. He is always punctual, reliable and ensures that all work is carried out to the deadline needed. 

He has had a very successful career since leaving school, and has obviously worked hard to achieve his goals.

Glen is also a devoted family man who is married with 3 children.  I miss being able to call on him any time of day or night if I have an electrical problem, but I wish him every success for the future.
